Summary: I usually never have time nor need to review products, but this one is so pissing me of that I specially registered here to let you know of my dealings with IPAQ 914c I use it businesswise +/- 6 months. It's a company's mobile. IMHO this smartphone is really a joke. The major problems are powerconsumption and battery lifetime, freez of application and not user friendly network management. The battery of this phone cannot handle a day with a wifi on.
Pros: keyboard, support of high density SD cards
Cons: battery lifetime; no audiojack, audio and charger are sharing the connector , terribly long loading GPS
Summary: I use it businesswise +/- 6 months. It's a company's mobile. IMHO this smartphone is really a joke. The major problems are powerconsumption and battery lifetime, freez of application and not user friendly network management. The battery of this phone cannot handle a day with a wifi on. Not to mention the use of other application.
Summary: I have had this phone for over two weeks now and i think it is amazing. I haven't had any problems with it and it works extremely well. This is Hp's comeback to the blackberry, and i think it outranks it on every level. I would recommend it to every person who is looking for a good smartphone.
Summary: Hi, I have to say that I am a geek and I am changing my phones all the time. But this is the phone does the job - I had blackberry, nokia e71 etc. but for business use this is the ultimate phone. Sync with exchange and oultook works perfectly. The battery last for minimum 3 days (constant use). The internal GPS is superb (I use the Navigon software). Build in quality is great - very robust phone).
Summary: I am a long time iPaq user (hw6915 previously), so the fact the battery life has not improved is livable. But the poor telephone application and its slow response to user input is very disappointing. I also can't get the Bluetooth to pair properly with my car (not had a problem with any other phones) etc, etc. As always with HP, it's not a bad PDA -very functional but a poor phone. I regret my decision to buy an iPaq again.
Excerpt: I work for Hp and this phone has some faults. On the Vodafone network it uses to much power so the battery runs out of juice just after lunch. The PDA functions are very good but the software is slow to react to your commands. The phone is rubbish. Hangs up, switches itself off, locking and screen freezes are frequent. Press to answer a call and it sends the call to vmail. I would not buy this phone again.
Excerpt: I just had mine delivered a few days ago, and can report that it works perfectly with Emansio push mail (pocket outlook plugin enabling real push mail from any email service), and is lighter than for example Diamond Touch. The screen resolution is ok, but they should have gone for a 320x320 screen....
Summary: This is a great little device - apart from the pathetically poor battery life. It's full of useful features and I was looking forward to using it to keep in touch with the office when I'm on the road, but the battery's down to 10% and the iPAQ's beeping at me after around 4 hours use. And not very intensive use at that - a few phone calls, read & send maybe 5 or 6 emails and 4 hours later it's dead. This device is not fit for purpose - shame on you HP.
Summary: Wie alle Smartphones mit Windows Mobile 6.x markiert das iPAQ 914c die Spitze der Entwicklung der Handys, die bereits sehr viele Möglichkeiten bieten, die aber die Daten des Anwenders nicht wer-weiss-wohin ins Internet übertragen. Statt dessen funktioniert der Abgleich mit Outlook genau so wie man es sich wünscht. Das iPAQ 914c: -Das Display dürfte größer sein, kann aber wahnsinnig hell. -Der Akku ist riesig groß, hält aber nur 2-3 Tage.
